I am a Christian who is also a Kenyan, hence the rather unimaginative portmanteau “Chrenyan.”

I believe the Gospel of Jesus Christ to be the greatest Force for social change that any community can experience.

I believe that regardless of creed, colour, tribe or doctrine, each of our lives ought to be spent making life better for as many people around us as we can – regardless of their creed, colour, tribe or doctrine.

I long for the day when our discussions on Kenyan politics will be atribal.

They say I look serious, but I love to laugh. I love it when others laugh, too. And the things of God mean a lot to me.

    Every time I read a post that is based on God given principles I salute and I know there are people out there who hold true to the ONE and ONLY wayGODs way.
    God bless you much. Today is the first time I have read your posts and now am hooked.

      Hey Njeri,

      Thank you so much for your kind comment. An author writes in order to be read, so I am grateful that what I have written resonates with you. May God bless you too.

    Cheryan you get it!!!! We must be Isaiah 58 to the world even if it means jumping into the political field to fight injustice!!! To testify I am also a Christian first and Kenyan second!!! I was born into a political family the Nyachae family as the eldest son of Charles Nyachae of the constitution implementation commission!!! I was involved in politics at a young age when helping my grandad but when I became a Christian in 2006 I shyed a way because I thought God did not like politics!!! After growing in Christ I realized that God calls us to be his hands and feet beyond the four walls!!! Even if it means fighting on the political front like you mentioned William wilborforce!!!! The fight for Kenyan prosperity is Gods battle and so we must engage ourselves!!! That is why I chose to support Peter Kenneth because he understands Justice for all!!! May God bless you champ

      Hi Nyandusi,

      First of all thanks for taking the time to comment, and for your kind comments. I really appreciate it.

      I have just read Isaiah 58 and I am most humbled. While I still strongly believe that political office is not mine to seek, it is true that supporting good men is what we really must be about as Christians. There is a man called McGovern who died, and The Economist eulogized him as follows:

      The Economist

      “GEORGE MCGOVERN, the former Democratic presidential candidate who has died aged 90, is remembered as a man disastrously attached to principle.”

      He was a war hero, yet he eschewed bragging. He said: “We thought the soldiers who never came back from World War II were the real heroes.”

      Lord God, let me die like that. Let it be said that I was attached – even disastrously – to the right principles.

      God bless you too, bro.

    I am intrigued by you and think that you are the voice in the wilderness that this land longs and needs to hear if it is to heal. We are involved in politics in mombasa and you may be the answer to a much lifted up prayer. Terri

      Hi Terri,

      Thank you for writing and for your very kind comments. I believe one’s faith must affect every facet of one’s life, and that we dare not compartmentalize it. I should not only speak like a Christian, and behave like one, but I should work like one, vote like one, and speak like one, even on matters political.

      If I need to be heard, God will make a way. I have tried, but perhaps I haven’t tried hard enough. You encourage me to do more in this regard, and I will.

    All I can say we need more Chrenyans for this country to realize its God’s given destiny. I would be proud to discuss politics in Kenya without an iota of tribal inclination. When will our politics be issue based and not personality or tribe/ethnic? That day, I pray may God enable me to see it. Be blessed Chrenyan and continue to inspire and chat the good course.
